Crostini are the perfect party appetizer: load these little toasts with toppings of all kinds! Here’s how to make them at home: it’s quick and easy.
Here’s a fantastic easy appetizer: crostini! Crostini means “little toasts” in Italian, and these toasts are perfect for parties! Load these crispy breads with toppings, or serve with dips, spreads or cheese. Alex and I make crostini often for parties, and we’ve been using this simple method for years. It’s time to share it! There are so many things you can do with a good crostini: this one takes only 10 minutes to bake and uses no oil. Here’s how to do it!
Here’s a way to amp your crostini: make them into garlic toast! This garlic toast recipe uses a toasted baguette like this crostini, but adds olive oil, minced garlic, and dried garlic before toasting. It adds the best garlicky flavor! To get perfectly crisp toasts that are closer to crostini, use a little less oil than the recipe calls for.
If you make these crostini as garlic toasts, they’re great as a side for soup like Tomato Soup, or even with pasta like Fettuccine Alfredo.
- 1 baguette (homemade or storebought)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Slice the baguette into thin slices on the bias (diagonally). Place the slices on a baking sheet in a single layer.
- Bake for about 10 minutes, until golden and crispy. Cool to room temperature: they’ll crisp up even more as they cool. If making in advance, store up to 5 days in a sealed container at room temperature.
